May 27, 2012

I just posted a new tutorial on how to use Audacity and a basic headphone and microphone to create you own audiobooks. Hope someone finds it useful.

Jumpstart the Muse

May 20, 2012

I am constantly running into news articles on the web that sound like fodder for a story. The stories might be historical fiction, alternate history or just an interesting background to a romance or mystery. Here’s a case in point.

“Now experts have suggested the domestication of dogs, and the benefit it gave to their masters, could have played a key rule in the demise of the Neanderthals and supremacy of humans.”

I find several of these news articles each week and just don’t have the time to follow them up with a story. But I do add the basic concepts to a StoryNotes.txt file for future reference.

What news articles have caught your imagination lately?

BaltiCon

May 18, 2012

BaltiCon is coming up the end of the month and I am planning on attending Saturday afternoon and evening. I never did get the info from the con staff this year, so I won’t have a signing table, nor am I scheduled for any panels. Feel free to say “Hi” if you see me in the halls.

An Ongoing Process

May 18, 2012

This website has been in dire need of a facelift for some time now. Just the header and a few of the pages were updated today.

Some new books are due out this summer and I will be adding excerpts, cover art and even a bit about the software and hardware I use as part of the creative process.

If you have questions or comments on any of my posts, please don’t be shy. I’m looking forward to an exciting summer.
